We often think about photography as a process that ends with the production of a good shot. A great effort is put into the search of the right composition, exposure, technical execution and the editing of what we believe to be the final image. Photography has become the medium we use to visualise on a screen or the image we see behind the glass of a fairly regular frame. Have we really thought of an image as a physical object able to go beyond the flatness we are accustomed to? What happens when our pictures get out there, in a real space and become a visual objects with their own “skin” and “body”?
This workshop aims to briefly explore the many possibilities involved in the process of image making through theoretical and hands-on examples. We will question some narrative clichés associated to photography, talk about surfaces and papers and produce new photographic objects from pre-existing images. The final part will be dedicated to the many exciting ways an image can be installed, becoming also a tridimensional object.
